I’m honored to present the caricature of The Divine Miss M(idler) as Winifred ‘Winnie’ Sanderson of Hocus Pocus!
I chose to caricature Bette Midler’s Witch-avatar, because:
- It made my job easier
- It made the drawing more interesting
- She was the only reason I watched Hocus Pocus twice
- On 16th May, she tweeted: “The IRS overtaxing The Tea Party? I never thought I’d say this to the IRS – THANK YOU! THANK YOU FOR DENYING 501C-4 to any group who hates!” – And that my friends, is what led to the small print at the bottom of the image.
Most of you know who I am talking about, but for those who don’t know about this potpourri of talents, here’s a small intro.
Bette Midler is:
An American Actress, comedian, singer, and entrepreneur, and…she’s the master of all these trades!
She was born in 1945 and started her career on Broadway and moved into singing. Midler’s debut album released in 1972 was called The Divine Miss M, and it fetched her, her first Grammy.
Till in her mid-thirties, she hadn’t worked in a motion picture. Her first movie was “Rose“, for which she received a Golden Globe award.Her career details are mind-boggling and this caricaturist will like to excuse herself from the labor required to post them all here. If you are interested, please find Bette Midler’s biography and Career Details here.
My Favorite Bette Midler Movies:

Aw Shafali….you did it again. Nice rendition of the great Miss M. I looked but I couldn’t find a mouse in the print. Was he missing because of the crow? Or were you trying to protect him from Dewey Dewster, the great hunter? I love your drawings!
I did Ms. Middler’s caricature because you had suggested that I make hers 🙂 It was an excellent suggestion – she is a caricaturist’s delight. She is one of the very few women who have the nerve to make fun of themselves. The mouse was there but the crow got him 🙂
